First visit

Restaurant is a strange shape - we were sat in the long corridor section. At least it allows a view over the waterfront. We had their starter board - the NewClassic Italian Antipasto - to share. That was really good. We then enjoyed thin base pizza with a salad in the middle. The were good too!

We had booked for 7, turned up as a 6, waited 10mins for manager to cobble together a series of tiny tables lined up right against a window so making it impossible to talk between us. We decided to wait for a table of 6 to leave and were offered no drinks or menus while waiting. Service was very slow,... More

My wife and I visited here on a 2 for 1 taste card deal as we haven't been in years and thought we'd give it a go again. The restaurant has a really nice location by the water front but its a bit of a strange layout with twists and turns and the noise really carries from other tables and... More

Painfull is about the only adjective i can use. Food was good, as normal, but the service was just dire. Mistakes on the order mixed with glacial service made the experience border on comical. It would seem from the other guests' behaviour that my sentiments are not unique. In mitigation this is not the norm.

I took the trouble to book a table, but clearly this is not the done thing as the manager was completely dismissive. The food was good and arrived in a reasonable time (unlike the table beside us who had waited 30mins and had to leave as they had an appointment). The food was nice and well cooked. However getting service... More

Myself and my boyfriend went here yesterday for our anniversary. we come here quite often so thought it best to book. it seemed fairly busy but we were greeted by an extremely friendly man at the door who took us to our table. he was very chatty which was a nice start to our evening. we ordered fairly quickly and...

Have been here a few times now, usually when visiting the cinema. I like the food at Pizza Express, but I'm not sure I'd choose this branch if I weren't combining it with something else. Staff have always been friendly, but at this branch they are quite rushed and nothing ever seems to quite go to plan. Orders are often... More

We like the food but the location on the water front is just great. There is an area outside under cover so on a warm evening you can sit on the quay and listen to the boat rigging jingle

Pretty average run of the mill Pizza Express at Ipswich Docks. Strange layout too. Food was ok, nothing special really, ok if you just want a pizza!
